The Emmys are still trying to figure out what a TV movie is, and why episodes of Black Mirror shouldn't count

The Emmys are, by their nature, a reactive body, typically rewarding the sorts of things that worked reasonably well in the past, and frequently playing a cranky game of catch-up with a television industry that’s been radically mutating for the last 20 years.
